The Hellenic \expndtw2 style preponderated in the decorative arts for a long time. \expndtw6 It was then modified by the addition of Indian motifs. \expndtw3 The contact of diverse civilisations gave an impetus \expndtw9 to trade and commerce,\super 1\nosupersub  and there began a constant \expndtw3 flow of ideas, which produced far-reaching results in \expndtw8 different directions. Such instances as the conversion \expndtw4 of Heliodorus to Vaisnavism, and of Menander or of \expndtw3 Theodoros of the Swat Vase inscription\super 2\nosupersub  to Buddhism, \expndtw4 show that the Greeks were gradually succumbing to the \expndtw12 subtle influence of Indian faiths. Thus, when "the \expndtw5 legions had thundered past," India "plunged in thought \expndtw4 again" in a manner which slowly converted her military conquerors into her moral and spiritual captives. The \expndtw6 Indianisation of the Greeks must have been, to some \expndtw9 extent, brought about by mixed marriages also.}\par \pard \plain \li1062\ri1112\sb198\sa0{\pict\wmetafile8\picw6261\pich990\picwgoal3549\pichgoal561
